Thank you. She is 280 days today and udder is still up a bit in the mornings. She has started sleeping a lot more at night, moving a lot slower and starting to look miserable. Thankfully just as sweet as always.
I am really looking forward to seeing this little foal!

This morning Precious has made some changes. Her udder was fuller. However what surprised me is that her tail head area is noticeably softer and sunk in. Her vulva is more relaxed too.
I am keeping her on camera at night as I've noticed her demeanor has changed.
She is almost 285 days. I could be wrong as I've not foaled her out before, but her body seems closer to foaling than what her udder is clueing me in on...

Remember, they can be a bit tricky, and just when you think they've slowed down -- they really just planned to have you give up and leave so they can drop that baby!! 

Keep us posted, and pictures are appreciated!

Diane, your right! She sure could at any time!
 And I am going by the date they were first put together, as I dont have breeding date from previous owner. That date was March 3 2016.  So she could be 187 days today.
Took new pics this evening, baby low but she is still lopsided and wide.Udder barely there.
I dont even know if  she bred right away or a month later. So I am just watching.

What are yalls thoughts? First 2 pics today, last pic a week ago.

Thank goodness she's still wide, I would be more nervous if baby had lined up.  But she definitely has a "V" started and her tummy looks like it's moving forward of center.  So, I'm wondering.  Do you know her history about carry dates? 

Was she with the stallion at the other farm?  Udders don't really mean much to me, since they can fill an udder at foaling, but they are nice to look at if they start one.  LOL

Any personality changes?

I'd be watching for her pushing her butt against things, rolling as a hint she's trying to line up baby, etc.  If she was with the stallion at the other farm, she may be further along than you think.  She's definitely worth watching closely.

What do you think, Anna?

Agree , i still think she looks lopsided but you know her better than we all do, so Id agree to keep a close eye on her.

Gee she has such a sweet face , I can understand why she is named "Precious"  :)

All I know was that she was put with the stallion at the other farm on March 3rd, so that is the earliest she could have bred.
Yes she has had some personality changes, she is laying down more at night, and has started standing in a new part of her stall with Bum against the wall. Sometimes she will stand with head in corner. She isnt able to eat quite as much hay as she was before during the nighttime. She has done some rolling in her stall as the evidence is on her fur in the morning :)
I only know she has had 2 foals before. Both fillies. Both appaloosa. I have no idea how long her previous pregnancies went.
Her vulva doesnt seem ready, but her tail head area is relaxing.  I do check her udder am & pm but its not much to look at.
 I do have her on camera at night now :)
